We're kicking off 2019 again with a day long fundraiser for Second Chance Animal Center! This No-Kill shelter was a home for our cat Charlie years ago and they do a wonderful job providing safe and compassionate care as animals wait for their forever home.
Yoga extends far beyond poses and relaxing. Yoga teaches us to be generous, participatory in the world around us, and kind. Start 2019 by bettering your well being, and helping to change the world for an animal in need.
All 6 classes on New Year's Day are offered by donation. Bring cash to any (or multiple!) classes and all money collected will be donate to the shelter. We are also collecting animal food and supplies for the shelter. Their wish list and class registration are on our website! As usual the Fitness and Relaxation Yoga classes have limited space, so snag those now if you're coming!

NASHUA, N.H. -- MCLA's Rafael Castro scored a pair of goals and the Trailblazers held off host Rivier 2-1 this evening in non conference men's soccer action.
The win snapped a 22-game skid for the Trailblazers dating back to the 2017 season.
Castro got MCLA (1-4) off to a strong start collecting his first goal of the night in the 14th minute off a Garrett DeRosia assist for a 1-0 advantage. The Trailblazers kept the lead into halftime even though Rivier (0-4-1) outshot the visitors 6-1 in the opening half.
Castro would strike again in the 68th minute. He would score unassisted to up the margin to 2-0 with just 22 minutes left to play. Rivier didn't go quietly however as Kelvin Cortez would strike in the 72nd minute to trim the deficit to just 2-1, still with 18 minutes to play.
